India's Climate Mitigation Policy: Challenges and Prospects

2023. Vol. 18. No. 4. P. 96–123 [issue contents]
India is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world, largely due to its high dependence on coal. However,since the early 2000s, New Delhi has been introducing various tools to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In 2022, anew climate plan was adopted, which for the first time set a goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2070. To achieve the goalof reducing greenhouse gases in the energy sector, India is using several market-based schemes, which will become the basisof the Indian emissions trading system in the nearest future. Environmentally friendly transport is actively developing. Itis being research in the field of industrial decarbonization, carbon capture and storage systems, and forest protection andafforestation programs are being implemented. However, the implementation of the identified areas is being fraught withdifficulties, which lead to the implementation of controversial measures on the part of the state, economically justified, butcontrary to the climate strategy. This study examines the main directions of Indian climate policy, prospects and difficultiesin their implementation to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality.
